About the Book



The sixth novel in Gabaldon's #1 "New York Times"-bestselling Outlander saga is a masterpiece of historical fiction that continues the extraordinary story of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century wife, Claire.



Book Synopsis



#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The sixth book in Diana Gabaldon's acclaimed Outlander saga, the basis for the Starz original series. Don't miss the new Outlander novel, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone, available November 23!

"The large scope of the novel allows Gabaldon to do what she does best, paint in exquisite detail the lives of her characters."--Booklist

The year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest.

With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence--with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie's death, along with his kin. For once, he hopes, his time-traveling family may be wrong about the future.



Review Quotes



"The sixth instalment of the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser, already number one on the bestseller list, is a whopping 980 pages of action-packed escapism. It also has surprisingly melancholy and insightful views on the experience of growing old and dealing with the losses that entails.... One of the things that sets Gabaldon apart from other romance writers is exhaustive research of the times in which her characters live, so evident in her attention to period detail.... plot lines and stand-alone yarns are expertly woven together with the overall theme of impending doom and the question of predetermination." -- The Toronto Star

"Fans of Diana Gabaldon's popular Outlander series have another rousing historical-science-fiction-romance novel to savour in A Breath of Snow and Ashes.... For fans, this book is another slam-dunk hit. It's a massive, long-lasting source of entertainment." -- The Gazette (Montreal)

Praise for Diana Gabaldon:

"Triumphant. . . . Her use of historical detail and truly adult love story confirm Gabaldon as a superior writer."--Publishers Weekly

"Diana Gabaldon is a born storyteller. . . . The pages practically turn themselves."--Arizona Republic

"Readers will find every expectation fulfilled.... The large scope of the novel allows Gabaldon to do what she does best, paint in exquisite detail the lives of her characters."--Booklist

I absolutely loved this installment of the Outlander series. It was a "Breath of Fresh Air" after The Fiery Cross, which lost me for a while due to its seemingly unnecessary detail of boring plots which did nothing to enhance the story line. But with this book she get the story right back on track and is just as exciting as ever. I'll definately read it again!
